The menu is quite extensive and very varied from unusual to more standard fare but ALL was really excellent in quality and presentation. Service was pitched perfectly and it is now a really well run and very appealing restaurant, with something for everyone and prices to meet all wallets. It is open every day lunch and dinner and is always... More

OK, if this restaurant is ranked 11th in Stow, then the others must be beyond incredible. The Butcher was recommended as their favorite by a B&B across the street. We can see why! Incredible flavors and subtle nuances made this a most delicious dining experience. I had a herb encrusted sea bass. Perhaps this was a special as I don't... More

The food here is unimaginative, not cooked very well and fairly boring, that, accompanied by shocking service is a clear cut message to avoid at all costs. On the subject of cost, it's massively overpriced for what you get.

We had a very enjoyable evening recently in The Old Butchers. The food was excellent with a very relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. The menu offered just about the right variety of choices to suit most tastes. Even the wine list offered labels I know and enjoy. We will definitely return. Brian T.

We ate in here on Good Friday, we enjoyed the charcuterie selection, followed by some tapas. The food was really good and the service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable and gave good advice. The mussels are highly recommended.

Really poor and disappointing lunch today...not been to Old Butchers for several years but our memory of it was good. Greasy and gristly posh pie - not recommended. Gnocchi burnt and poor value for main course (about 10 pieces of pasta????). Coffees were cold. Bill was £100 for 3 people but came away annoyed about presentation, quality of food and... More

"We dined at the old Butchers on Saturday evening during out stay in Stow, have to say that the restaurant did not live up to our expectations. On entering the restaurant and being shown to our table we weren't asked if we wanted our coats taken and subsequently had no where to put them, we were shown to our table... More

This was our first visit to the Old Butchers in Stow - roasted shellfish main course was suggested and lived up to my expectations as did the calves liver - absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Service was friendly. Overall a great evening and we will be back.
